On 26 August 2020 at 6:30 PM EDT, in celebration of Women’s Equality Day, the United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) will present an online live stage-reading of the theatrical production “We Did It For You! Women’s Journey through History.” The event will be streamed live on ZOOM and is restricted to the first 500 registrants.
This Women’s Equality Day celebrates the centennial year of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, while also calling attention to the work that continues today and the efforts of women throughout history toward full equality. In this online live-streamed staged reading, high school student Melanie must write about the most influential woman in history – the play provides her with an entertaining and quick tour through that journey, starting with the struggle women had in the 17th century Puritan Revolution through to our 21st century empowered women politicians. The staged-reading will have live actors in costume on Zoom with slides to enhance the educational experience, and videos of the songs for entertainment. Stick around afterward for a Q&A with the playwright, producers, and actors. Check out a sneak preview of the event: https://youtu.be/Bqdnxuvbav8
The “We Did It For You!” troupe has performed across California and Massachusetts for thousands of adults, college and high school students. Past performance highlights include participating in the California Women’s Suffrage Celebration in Sacramento, California, and on Women’s Equality Day 2018 at the famous Faneuil Hall in Boston, Massachusetts.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about viewing the production.
